Do You Qualify for the Energy-Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction?
179D is a deduction available for the use of energy efficient components within buildings. It allows for up to $1.80 per square foot deduction if the lighting, HVAC, and/or building envelope meet energy efficiency guidelines.
An analysis of blueprints, completion of energy efficient testing, and subsequent modeling through IRS-approved software generates the amount of deduction. These deductions may be claimed on current-year tax returns or via an accounting method change for older facilities.
An additional deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is available if you meet the qualifications of this provision.
